GOP House Judiciary Committee’s viral Capt. Jack Sparrow tweet triggers leftists, ‘Y’all are f**king sick’

A tweet from the official account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee that was an apparent attempt to troll supporters of actress Amber Heard who was on the losing end of a defamation lawsuit to ex-husband Johnny Deep got a big reaction on Twitter, nearly all of it being severely negative.

On Wednesday, a Virginia jury unanimously awarded Depp with more than $10 million in a trial that has dominated headlines for weeks, a verdict that some have seen as a larger victory for men in general who have faced false accusations during the hysterical #MeToo era, often having their lives destroyed without due process. Needless to say, the jury’s decision has been intensely polarizing.

Following the verdict, whoever runs the House Judiciary Committee’s Twitter account posted a GIF image of Depp in his most famous role as Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney’s lucrative “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise, a clip from a scene of the character striking a victorious pose.

The tweet immediately went viral, nearly breaking Twitter in the process, drawing a hurricane of backlash for the committee and its ranking member, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio from leftists whose emotions were still raw over Heard’s legal comeuppance.


Some pointed out that the actor once joked about assassinating former President Donald J. Trump.

Still, others tried to shift the subject to the Democrat push for draconian new gun restrictions in the aftermath of last week’s mass murder at a Texas elementary school.

Despite being on the losing end of the sensationalist celebrity trial that mesmerized Americans, Heard did win $2 million in her own defamation lawsuit which, judging by the reaction, didn’t serve as much of a balm for the perpetually unhinged activist left’s psychic wounds.

Depp, who wasn’t in the courtroom for the verdict expressed great relief, saying that “the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled.”
